For I delight in your commands because I love them.Psalm 119:47

Gods motive is love, and He seeks to teach, provide, and guide all in His care as well.~ Pastor Bob Barnett

The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a hundred-year lease on the building next door and set up shop.
